This study uses a Field Frame Analysis approach to identify whether and how DML issues are presented in the education reform field. One of the most important findings of this study is that there are prominent supporters of DML in the education reform field. However, the ways in which these organizations discuss DML, and learning and technology issues more generally, may actually hinder rather than build wider support for DML programs.
